This time around it’s all snippets from a comic I am working on. I am painfully aware that I don’t actually have much in the way of proper experience in drawing sequential work (or to be more accurate I have drawn a meagre 24 pages to date). In order to get a bit more practice in before I start work on an ongoing series this fall (more on that later), I’m taking a leaf out of the book of Becky Cloonan and drawing a mini-comic with a view to having it available to buy for those of you attending Thought Bubble this November.
You will be able to see that all my favorite tropes are covered - beards, boats, skeletons, the sea and it’s mysteries - and there will no doubt be more snippets posted between now and November.
Testing ways of working with three colors or less when printing on the Riso. What might look good, what wouldn’t etc.
I’ve been doing so much work with a lot of detailed linework recently, and so I’m also testing if I might skip lines completely.
